Has rapidly established itself as a leading variety, which is no surprise. The smooth skinned roots have a really sweet flavour and are resistant to canker. It is quick to establish after germination and remains vigorous.
Sow directly outside in a well prepared seed bed in shallow drills (1.5cm deep). The best sowing date is in late April/late May. Any earlier sowings are very unreliable and the plants are more prone to canker.
